    "Very nice for people who love the outdoors and are physically fit. Wonderful scenery and good fishing. Nice quiet town with good restaurants. Loved the Bass Pro Shop at Auburn."

  • Highly recommended!

    "We just returned from an incredible week at Shotwell Cottage! The place is perfect for a relaxing and overall very enjoyable getaway. Location can't be beat just a couple of miles from Skaneateles Village. The cottage and cabin are a "great duo" with both having 2 BR's and a bath, and the screened in porch is ideal as a comfortable and scenic place to see the lake, eat breakfast/dinner, and/or relax, read, or play games. The yard area is flat and looks out beautifully on the lake with the dock area just a few steps below with lounge chairs, a picnic table, and a perfectly placed grill to cook out. My daughter and other family members swam daily and made great use of everything Shotwell had to offer. Owners Steve and Sheila were a pleasure to deal with. We were greeted enthusiastically and given a nice tour of the place when we arrived and enjoyed lots of conversation with them being that they also have a background in the NYC area where we are from. Can't say enough about the experience. We hope to be back next summer!"

  • One of the best vacation we've ever had!

    "What a great cottage and property this is. We had a wonderful vacation visiting wineries, shopping and eating at wonderful restaurants in town, dinner cruise on the lake, swimming, boating, relaxing on the deck and enjoying the views. The house is comfortable, charming and has everything you could need or want. It really couldn't have been better. We look forward to vacationing here again. Only wish this place was mine!"

  • Wonderful week at a very special lakeside retreat

    "We had a wonderful family vacation at this Skaneateles Lake retreat. Our hosts, Janet and John, were very gracious. The lake was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed morning and evening kayak and canoe excursions. The accommodations were extremely clean and the cottage very cozy. The location is excellent for easy day trips to some beautiful state parks. Would recommend Watkins Glen, Taughannock Falls and Chimney Bluffs in particular. They are beautiful and within easy distance of the "Camp." And a more picturesque Finger Lakes town than Skaneateles would be hard to come by. We are looking forward to a return visit!! The Duhamels"
